Sisko, Bashir and Kira have been taken captive by Cal Hudson. Once again the two commanding officers try to convince each other, but when Sisko refuses to join Hudson's cause, he stuns them. After returning to the station Sisko orders O'Brien to find Gul Dukat and decides not to tell Starfleet about Hudson. Meanwhile Odo has found out Quark's trade. He and Sisko interrogate the Ferengi and find out what he was selling. Then the Cardassian legate Parn arrives with a surprising message. Parn tells Central Command was indeed secretly smuggling weapons, but that this was the doing of Gul Dukat. Sisko and Kira don't believe it all and Sisko realizes that Hudson was telling the truth. Sisko aims for the best possible scenario: preventing a war, freeing Dukat and offering Hudson the possibility to return. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Internal Struggle
9 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The Maquis are a group of rebels who are disappointed with the direction of the Federation. They are responding primarily to the treaty that was formed between the Cardassians and the Bejorans where a large settlement was left on the Cardassian side. This episode pits Sisko against an old friend, played by Bernie Casey, the ex-NFL player. This episode deals with the human aspect. Sisko must align himself with the Cardassian leader.
